BodyTalk is a complementary therapy based on the theory that the body has the wisdom to heal itself.

BodyTalk Communications

BodyTalk communications are based on neuromuscular biofeedback. This is also similar to tapping or muscle-testing used in applied kinesiology. A client's body gives "yes" and "no" answers to a series of questions asked by a trained BodyTalk practitioner. The answers are received through physical responses. Through these communications the BodyTalk practitioner identifies "energy circuits" within the body that are weakened, stressed, blocked, or broken.

Gentle Tapping

After the question/answer period done to identify imbalances the body has prioritized the practitioner applies gentle tapping on the client's head and also on the sternum. The intention of the cranial tapping is to "wake up the brain" so that it can send out reconnecting signals to the other body parts which require repair or balancing. The intention of tapping the chest region is to lock in and support the energy re-connections.

BodyTalk Cortices Technique

The Cortices Technique is one of the core techniques that is freely taught by BodyTalk practitioners. It is a simple do-it-yourself technique that takes only one to two minutes to do. Tapping your cortices helps to balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain and restores brain function. There are several videos demonstrating this technique available on You Tube. Dr. John Veltheim, the founder of BodyTalk Therapy, describes the Cortices Technique in this video.

BodyTalk Founder

BodyTalk was founded in 1995 by Australian-born chiropractor, Dr. John Veltheim. Dr. Veltheim, who currently resides in Sarasota, Florida, is also trained in traditional acupuncture.
